Teaching Number Sets With A Twist

Whole, Natural, Integers, Rational, Irrational and Real definitions are hard to remember for the students, especially when they must know which numbers go where. I have posted lots of ideas about how to teach this but thought of another form--using blueprints

Have your students work in groups to create blueprint for a house that all types of numbers could live in while maintaing the House Rules (i.e. no zeros in the natural numbers' room, no fractions playing in the integer section of the house). Please send me pics if you try this
